Most Overrated Places on the East Coast

Places I went to with high hopes, but left disappointed

  • 1. Jacksonville, FL
    Jacksonville, Florida

    I've spent more time in Jacksonville then I would have really liked to. There's great beaches in the area, but there's not much to do in Jacksonville itself. Maybe it’s just a personal bias, but I don't think so. A nice place to pass through or spend a day or MAYBE two, but no more.

  • 2. Bunker Hill, MA
    Bunker Hill, Boston, Massachusetts

    Don't let the history fool you, it lives up to it's name. It's a hill. If you're in Boston, there are MANY better things to see that a hill.

  • 3. Plymouth Rock, MA
    Plymouth Rock, Plymouth, Massachusetts

    Again, don't let the history fool you. It's a rock surround by bars. You're in New England, there are better things to see.

  • 4. Atlantic City, NJ
    Atlantic City

    East Coast's Las Vegas? Maybe the closest thing, but Las Vegas is unique and, from what I've heard, Atlantic City is no Las Vegas

  • 5. Fort Caroline National Memorial
    Fort Caroline National Memorial, Jacksonville, Florida

    I've heard this place is a real let down; it's not much more than wall and a little more.

  • 6. Washington, D.C.
    Washington DC, District of Columbia

    Not a bad city, I was just expecting more. Too crowded and not enough to do for me.

  • 7. Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus
    The Ringling, Sarasota

    Just going off the reviews on TripAdvisor, but I'm not a fan of circuses.

  • 8. Yankee Stadium
    Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York

    Excuse my Red Sox bias, but come on; they're replacing it for a reason.
